About

Signed X is my first Nano entry and was completed in a about two weeks (because starting on time is for people who know what they're doing). It's a light-hearted GxB romantic comedy, what more do you need to know?

Some of you may have already seen this in the WIP sections, but I decided to give it a proper thread here.

Plot

One day our heroine, Marty (name can be changed), arrives uncharacteristically early to school to find a boy from another class leaving flowers on her desk. She hides before he can see her, not wanting the situation to become awkward.
How will our nutty, hopelessly romantic, manga-loving protagonist deal with the situation?

She will try to recreate classic romantic scenes from her favorite mangas with her not-so-secret admirer, Matt, in order to get him to confess his feelings. Duh! Fortunately, her reluctant friend Warren is there to help. Will she succeed, or will all her plans fail miserably? Hint: it’s not the former.

Cold hard facts

2 boys to pursue
10,109 words
6 pathetic attempts at romance
4 endings
vast amounts of pink
humor (at least I hope so)

Characters

Image

Marty
The happy-go-lucky protagonist. Her ideal in life is a manga heroine.
Image

Warren
The best friend who enjoys watching Marty fail. He likes sweets. A lot.
Image

Matt
The clueless love interest. He's a nice, normal, non-manga reading person.
Image

Vicky
The excitable friend who dreams of becoming an actress.

I wanted to comment to tell you I really enjoyed this!
Anytime one of my friends tried to act out a romance manga or anything..
This is how it turns out
Well everything goes completely wrong is what I mean, the only thing is they very rarely get the best friend who helps or the person they were persuing.I have to say the "You unlocked all four endings. did you unlock the secret alien ending? I was like WHAT I WANT NOW then read "Just kidding" xD I'm sad now.
This was incredibly cute and I loved this.
I'd have to say my favorite parts were
when I had Vicky give the flower to Matt as well as have Warren give the flower to him. I nearly died at what they both had said right before giving him the rose.

I absolutely loved this!!! <3333 The witty dialogue and the characters actions made me laugh out loud to myself so many times! It was utterly fantastic! I played it until I got all the endings and I loved every minute it of it!
I especially loved the scene in the basketball court where "Mack", the bully was the one who carried her to the infirmary instead of Matt! So hilarious~! xD
And the ending that involved Matt's little bother, I really wasn't expecting that, and couldn't stop laughing!
You have a gift for writing romance comedies and making loveable, well-developed characters. I'm highly anticipating your next project! (:

Just finished getting 2 of the endings, I was pleasantly surprised I could get 2 more! Romantic comedies are my favorite genre to play and I must say you had me laughing the whole time playing. 8D Warren is my favorite character by far and I must say he's probably the character with the most development. Considering how short the game is I don't expect deep character development XD but out of all the characters he was the most successful n_n I'm looking forward to playing your other games!

Finished! I have gotten all the endings! I can feel how easy-going Marty is!
I like how she always takes Warren's teasing lightly. It does seem like they do get along for a long time.
I didn't expect Matt's brother could have an ending too o__o It's a bit strange but I'm curious how they will go xD
So far it was really fun to play! Not to mention the jokes too, lol.

@RainbowMusicAddict
I'm happy you liked it ^^
People actually try to act out things from manga? You should show them this game, maybe they'll become inspired. :lol:
Sorry for fooling you into thinking there was a secret ending. It was just too funny not to put it in.
@k_arashi
That made me feel happy :D
The scene you talked about came to me as I was writing, but it's one of my favorites.
My current projects aren't comedies, but they will definitely have a comedic element to them, since I can't stay away from comedy entirely.

@Alisyndrome
I'm glad you found the game fun to play. Initially Warren was the only get-able character, so that's why he's more developped. He's my favorite too. In fact, he's my ideal kind of friend: supportive, but isn't afraid to make fun of you.

@ixWishing
I hope you like it! Let me know what you think.

@Akitsuki
I think relationships where the two tease each other are the best, not to mention fun to write.
Of course Michael had an ending, you didn't meet him for nothing. I'm sure together with him, Marty will create even crazier plans. :twisted:

Wahh... I finished playing most of the endings a few days ago, but I didn't get the chance to post a comment here. Anyways, this was a really funny game. It made me laugh more than a few times.
The art was also good and it was pretty well made.
Great job :)

I had really loved summer found me, so when I saw Signed X I really wanted to play it.
It was really funny, I laughed a lot when reading it xD
Also I prefered Warren's ending though usually I don't really like the best friend's endings.

Thank you for sharing this nice game.
